Elizabeth LaDuke, NCARB is a registered architect and architectural illustrator. She graduated from the University of Notre Dame’s Honors Program with a Bachelor of Architecture. While at Notre Dame, she studied classical architecture and urbanism and developed her talent for watercolor rendering. After graduation, Elizabeth spent five years working for a multidisciplinary firm in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she gained extensive experience in multi-family architecture.  She took on the role of Project Designer on a wide range of project types including townhomes, mixed-use, and high-rise condominiums. In 2008, Elizabeth joined Michael G. Imber, Architects in San Antonio, Texas. As a Project Designer and watercolor renderer at the firm, she further developed her passion and skill for classical architectural design. 

While studying at the University of Notre Dame, Elizabeth completed her thesis, a counter-proposal to Frank Gehry’s addition to the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Her design earned her the Noel Blank Desgn award at the university and was recognized in Steven Semes book, The Future of The Past, as an example of continuity in architectural language for the design of an addition to a historic building. Additionally, her thesis rendering was published in the new edition of The Study of Architectural Design, a Beaux-Arts instructional text book.

Elizabeth currently resides in Tacoma, Washington as a freelance architectural illustrator. She specializes in traditional media, including watercolor, pen and ink, and colored pencil. Her artistry and architectural background aid her in creating valuable imagery for architectural firms throughout the design process.  She is a registered architect in the state of Texas.
